FLORIDA FLYWHEELERS PARK & SHOW GROUNDS ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
It is with great sadness that the Florida Flywheelers Antique Engine Club, Inc. is announcing the cancellation of the November 2020 Fall Fuel-up and the 2020 Christmas in the Village Shows.
As we all know the Covid-19 Coronavirus has turned our world upside down. Unfortunately, it has affected the way events like ours are held. We need to error on the side of caution for the health and well-being of our Volunteers, Members, Communities and the General Public to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
The Board will continue to monitor the CDC & State of Florida guidelines and restrictions regarding our January & February 2021 shows. As soon as we know, we will let you know if we can hold them or not. We hope you understand and will support us in these decisions as we and the rest of our Country and World struggle in these unprecedented times. Please stay safe and healthy.
Florida Flywheelers Antique Engine Club
The Florida Flywheelers Antique Engine Club is a non-profit organization, founded in 1972, to promote interest in restoring, preserving and exhibiting antique internal combustion engines, steam engines, antique tractors and autos and other labor saving devices from the by-gone years. This was done by members hosting shows at their homes and farms around the state. As interest in the hobby grew some of these shows were held at rental facilities that could handle larger public attendance.
In 1997 it was decided to purchase property in a central location in south Polk County where members could have a show to display their collections to the public without the need to rent facilities. Flywheeler Park has now grown to almost 240 acres and includes a tractor pull track, club and member buildings which house displays, collections and many large engines, and a membership?which is over 1,500. With the club putting on 3 shows per year at the park.?The Florida Flywheelers are able to educate its members and the general public of the historical, technical, and social contributions and impact of these items of the past. One of the goals of the Florida Flywheelers is to be involved in giving back to the local community with our Christmas in the Village in December and?the supporting of the local FFA Tractor Restoration Teams. Our mission is to preserve the past for the future.
The Park is Open to the General Public DURING EVENTS ONLY
